I met Liliana in December when she was 8 days young. Mom Elisa and Dad Tim came along and we got some great family portraits. It may sound silly but I think dad’s soft purple shirt was just perfect with everything I had pulled together! Liliana was such a little munchkin. I especially adore her smile on the white background with the soft purple wrap.
Liliana was delivered at the Birth Center in Bryn Mawr. Mom tells the story of the time before her delivery:
“The night my water broke, Tim and I were going to go out for dinner. It was the Saturday before my due date, and it was chilly outside so last minute we decided we would stay warm and make dinner at home. We had the perfect meal on a chilly night – grilled cheese and tomato soup. Then, we got even more comfy and sat down to watch a James Bond movie. And the rest, as they say, is history. It was the perfect last night of just the two of us.
As for the actual day, my husband and mom were with me the whole time. It wasn’t in our birth plan, but I ended up catching the baby. We didn’t know what sex the baby was, and we were pleasantly surprised with our little girl!”
Mom sent this email a few weeks after the session, and it meant so much to me:
“We came to you when Liliana was only 8 days old. I was a new mom and still getting to know my little one. As I spent more and more time with her sleeping in my arms, I found moments and facial expressions I would hope to cherish forever. Maybe it was the lack of sleep or the roller coaster ride of emotions, thanks to my hormones, I became fearful that I would forget those moments. Thanks to you, those moments have been captured. You managed to capture precious moments I had not known of yet. I can look back at those pictures and remember that little smile she smiles in her sleep.
I can’t thank you enough for the pictures you took of Liliana. My husband and I are so happy with how they turned out. We get so many compliments on the pictures. I can not praise you and your work enough when showing off her pictures. We look forward to having more of life’s moments captured by you!”
Thank you Elisa & Tim for your kind words, and thank you for trusting me to capture this special time in your life!
